Undergraduate study in Civil and Structural Engineering
As a civil engineer you can literally change the world; developing bridges, tunnels and structures, providing water supplies, controlling pollution or responding to natural disasters. With a degree in this field you can watch your work impact positively on people's lives every day.
Earn that degree at the University of Sheffield and you'll develop your skills alongside the best. Our teaching is based on the latest world-leading research. Independent assessments by the Times, the Guardian and other sources all rate us as one of the elite civil engineering departments of the UK.
With our department's friendly, approachable staff on hand to help, you'll have all the support you need. And whatever programme you choose, we'll equip you to approach problems with sustainability in mind. So your projects will be future-proof – and so will your career.
A top degree and a great career
A career in civil engineering doesn't just call for technical expertise – you'll need to be an excellent team worker too. Our integrated design project gives you the chance to collaborate with other engineers while you learn – giving you the edge over other graduates when you start looking for work.
Our links with the big names in engineering will give you another advantage in the jobs market. The Industrial Partnership Scheme brings us closer to major companies like Arup, Mott MacDonald and Interserve. Choose Sheffield and you could have a chance of placements and vacation work with these employers. Students may receive sponsorship and job offers after this.
The figures prove the value of a degree in civil engineering from Sheffield. Within six months of graduating, more than three quarters of our graduates have already found jobs in the civil engineering industry or further study opportunities. Check out our range of courses and see which sounds right for you.
